day 677

winter, week 13

I just saw that I had a 30 days gap between October and November and that the 2 years mark qould have come 30 days earlier than it suppose to be so I fixed that. During this week I did some head studies again and worked on the skate project (creā-ture studios). and this is the end of the winter term (i got to give better name for those period of time). so there's a little feedback at the end for the 13 weeks.



Sunday 22


Wip

Study, trying to use less brush stroke


Head variations.

Maybe one more session on the shadow and then I'll do some fixes.


Study

Thursday 26


Study, wip

Friday 27

Reflected surfaces

Saturday  28


I'll test without any reference for the end of the winter session.
I'm not super happy about it but i can se improvement from when I started.
After doing it I know where to look during my next studies,
there are some areas that was i little confusing near the eye, nose and lips (everywhere).


In order to know what to improve
and to keep track of what to focus on,
 here's some additional notes.
All this is based on the ability to draw from imagination.
Grey area were not studied.

anatomy (human) : need to keep working on faces and start working on the body
anatomy (animals) : not really important to study that for now
composition : before doing some crazy composition,it would be good to study old paintings
perspective : study crazy perspective and work on mechs and vehicules
color and light : need to worked in color when i'm doing head studies
painting/brush work : do more with less
storytelling : go back to rpg project

Going back to the rpg project would help me improve in all those area i just need to focus on it.

Thursday 19


Study, taking more time on this one, 
her left eye is a little too open.


Friday 20


Study, I don't like her eyes.


Trying to animate the leaves with a function called puppet wrap in Photoshop.
I might have to try again or just to it by hand, because this doesn't look good.



Doing much more than that on the body but here's a teaser.

Saturday  21


Working on the shadow again and fixing the timing on the stick animation.
I might have to retouch the timing again.
I think i'm nearly done with the shadow pass.
 I still have some part to animate and fix.


Playing around with ''spherize''.


Study, her head was super hard because of the little angle. 
I thin I got the nose but her eyes and mouth are not right.


Sketching for fun.

I will have to find a way to do those in one day and to nor refine them,
keep them sketchy with nice lighting and color and still  understand what is happening.

I did a quick 3d model o better understand the structure 
and what kind of light direction i can go with,

Still trying to refine the idea and design for the gate.


The composition is pretty simple but it fit What I present.
I like the hand sketch better than the digital one.
